Why Clients Hire us for Probate (Estate Administration)

People come to us when one or more of these apply to their life. How many can we help you with?

  • Reduce Your Stress
    Why guess or hope you are not doing things incorrectly? We know the process, and we often carry the burden, so you do not have to worry throughout the process.
  • Your Reputation Can Be at Stake
    If you were named the executor, you have a duty to act in the estate’s and heirs’ best interest. If you fail in your duty, don’t pay taxes when due, or forget to keep heirs informed, you can be liable personally. An attorney ensures you do things properly.
  • ​Savings and Speed
    Minimizes court supervision of the executor and saves money by reducing or eliminating amounts the deceased owes creditors. Expedites sale of real and personal property and saves legal fees for the court to confirm the sale. It is not uncommon that the investment in a probate attorney more than pays for itself, and the estate ends up actually having more money than it otherwise would have.
  • ​When Estate Assets are Complicated
    Certain assets such as real estate, art, or a business can create complications or additional steps like obtaining appraisals, protecting, and insuring the asset. We have handled many of these situations in the past to help maximize what the heirs received.
  • If You Don’t Know the Laws or Paperwork
    Probate laws, and the forms used, are written in a detailed and hard-to-understand language. Many things in probate are not intuitive. Also, they must be achieved in a particular order. Failure to properly and timely accomplish tasks could cause you to be liable personally or, at a minimum, cause delays.
  • To Avoid or Minimize Family Disputes
    Family members may simply disagree on how to handle inherited property. These issues are often minimized or avoided altogether when a lawyer is involved.
  • ​For Protection
    As your Attorney, we help protect the executor from personal liability for paying the debts and taxes of the deceased.
  • ​Allows You to Focus on Your Family and Job
    If you have little free time, getting help from a law firm saves you time.

Trust Administration

When a loved one dies, and they have a trust, that trust must go through the process of trust administration.

With the help of an attorney, trustees must administer the trust in the best interest of the beneficiaries, according to Florida laws and terms of the trust. This process is confidential and does not need court approval.

However, if a trustee breaches these duties, they could be removed and may even be personally liable.

Trustee’s duties include, but are not limited to the following:

Ordering death certificates

Notifying beneficiaries

Locating assets

Valuing assets

Obtain IRS trust tax identification number

Determining if federal estate taxes are due

Liquidating assets to pay debts

Investing prudently

Assessing liabilities

Retiring assets

Distributing assets

Preparing accounting
